Banquet Cinema Pub

First Look at Banquet Cinema Pub

I was invited to a media tasting preview event at Banquet Cinema Pub in Oklahoma City on February 1, 2019. In this adventure vlog, I sat down with the owner to learn about what they have planned.

I’m planning to do more personal vlogs this year, using my channel for more casual stories, but also updates on what I’m working on.


Eat enthusiastically is the motto behind the Moore restaurant, Nosh. Offering a wide array of menu items, including daily specials like their entry mac-and-cheese, Nosh has something for everyone, including men, with their steaks and burgers.

In this Uncovering Oklahoma story, I interviewed the owner of Nosh, Kim Torres, and executive chef, Ben Gardner. This is the second video in my mini-series of date night places. Later today, I’m traveling to Oklahoma City to profile a European style café with all sorts of tasty treats.

Nosh is located at 200 SE 19th Street in Moore, Oklahoma. For more information, including menu and hours, visit

This was the second of two stories we filmed on location at Factory Obscura’s Beyond in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. See their next exhibition at

Somehow, the house also mysteriously placed glasses on me when it got angry. Magic! Honestly, I didn’t realize I had put my glasses back on in between takes. I also didn’t realize that I made that mistake again when editing until it was pointed out by Pallas when I was reviewing it with them. It’s funny and weird, so I decided just to keep in the mistake. It was the best take after all.

For future updates, follow Quarter Minutes on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube. If you love what we’re doing, want to see more, and before everyone else, join us on Patreon! I’m in the process of trying to schedule filming for Feburary’s stories.

Meatball at Osteria - photo by Dennis Spielman


Osteria is an Italian restaurant from Chefs Fabio Viviani and Jonathon Stranger in the Nichols Hills Plaza. In essence, Jonathon Stranger described Osteria for me on Uncovering Oklahoma as being a simple, casual experience that’s enhanced with great service and fresh, in-house pasta.

I personally got to try the Squid Ink Garganelli, which is what Jonathon is holding in the video thumbnail. I enjoyed it. This was one of those items that I wouldn’t have ordered, but I’m glad Jonathon had me try it. Next time I visit, I plan to get that meatball. That looks really good.

This video is the first in a somewhat mini-series theme of weekly videos for date night destinations. I already filmed next week’s video earlier this week, which I plan to edit tomorrow along with an artist statement that I shot Wednesday.

Cornish Smokehouse

Cornish Smokehouse

From the backyard to a food truck and now brick-and-mortar, for Uncovering Oklahoma I visited Chris and Nicole Cornish, the owners of Cornish Smokehouse, an Oklahoma City restaurant that does more than just BBQ. They specialize in jerk cuisine and delicious wood-smoked meats worth trying. 

Cornish Smokehouse is located at 801 SW 119th Street in Oklahoma City. To learn more about their specials and hours, visit them either FacebookTwitter, and/or Instagram

This is the first interview for Uncovering Oklahoma for 2019 and it sports the new logo as well as a title card for the place. This year in April will mark my tenth anniversary producing this show.
